RUINED

(1 out of 5 stars)

"THIS MOVIE WAS AWFUL. IT'S LIKE THE PEOPLE WHO MADE THIS MOVIE NEVER SAW A SINGLE EPISODE OF THE DUKES OF HAZZARD. THIS IS NOT HOW THEY ENDED UP IN HAZZARD. IF THEY HAVE WATCHED SOME OF THE ORIGINAL EPISODES OF THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, THEY WOULD HAVE NOTICED WHAT BROUGHT BO, LUKE AND DAISY TO LIVE WITH THEIR UNCLE JESSE. IF THEY ARE GOING TO TRY AND UPDATE THE MOVIES TO TODAY YOUTH, THEN THEY NEED TO WATCH SOME OF THE ORIGINAL EPISODES AND STOP TRYING TO CHANGE THE PERSONALITY OF THE CHARACTER. I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO ANYBODY WHO IS A TRUE FAN OF THE DUKES OF HAZZARD."
A Very Crappy Beginning!!!

"Back when I was obsessed with The Dukes of Hazzard, I saw this movie. I HATED IT! It was supposed to be a prequel to the movie, and they fixed it up in this one, and in the original (which is supposed to be the next one, it's crappy and THEN they fix it up. Another thing I didn't like was the sexual tension between Luke Duke and Lulu Hogg. If you love the original Dukes of Hazzard series, trust me, DO NOT WATCH THE DUKES OF HAZZARD: THE BEGINNING!!!"

""The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning" is yet another unimaginative rehash of a television series that's better off left alone. This film is a prequel which explains how the Duke clan got their start as fast-driving moonshiners. The casting is interesting, with Willie Nelson cast as a stoned Uncle Jesse, the family patriarch and moonshiner-in-chief. In all seriousness Willie should stick to singing. Perhaps his infamous IRS bill makes him take work he otherwise would refuse. I hope that's the reason he's here, anyway.

Bo and Luke Duke (Jonathan Bennett and Randy Wayne) are largely satisfactory here, if a bit denser and more slapstick than necessary (the scenes in drag are rather painful), while Harland Williams as Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane was a rather bizarre choice: he's a naturally funny guy, but his ad libs border on the otherworldly ("Did that manatee just swallow that cabbage whole?" was one that made it into the extras, for instance). Christopher McDonald does a decent job as Boss Hogg, while rest of the cast is mediocre at best.

The plot runs along as you would expect it would, with lots of uninspiring car chases in the General Lee, lots of bad double entendre, and subplots about an illegal ice cream facility and a pig ("Dainty") on a corrugated metal roof (which alternated between a live pig, a rubber pig, and a very hokey animatronic stunt pig, which talks in the extras). The extras are more interesting than the film, and include the birth of the General Lee, the tales of Dainty the pig, the story of Daisy Duke (which is way less interesting that you would expect), and a music video which features a country-rap hybrid about the Duke boys. Really.

Generally I don't like TV shows recycled into films, and this is no exception. It's not the worst thing I've ever seen, but it's plenty boring, and certainly not worth an hour and a half of your time."
